• HLRS Receives Donation to Support COVID-Related Research

    An enhancement of HLRS's systems with new graphic processing units will improve the center's ability to address the pandemic and other sudden crises.

  • HLRS to Create Digital Twin of Historic Ludwigsburg Palace Theater

    A comprehensive digital model of the theater in virtual reality will preserve and support study of the landmark, home to the oldest functional stage machinery in the world.

  • Taking Quantum Dots for a Spin

    A team from TU Dortmund is using high-performance computing to model how lasers could regulate spin dynamics in quantum dots. These small structures could have big implications for improving quantum computers and other advanced electronics.

  • SEQUOIA Project to Bring Quantum Computing to Industry

    HLRS will help develop new software for quantum computers and investigate hybrid approaches to integrate them with conventional systems for HPC and AI.

& Science

Research and science are the main pillars ensuring continuous delivery of high-edge services in every area of high-performance computing provisioning.



HLRS offers a variety of services to industry and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) way beyond plain HPC resource provisioning.



Simulations transform research and development, as well as decision making in politics. Dealing with simulations in a rational way is therefore a scientific and societal task in itself.


The High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) of the University of Stuttgart is one of the three member centres of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS). HLRS supports national and European researchers from science and industry by providing high-performance computing platforms and technologies, services and support. Services are provided in cooperation with the other two member centres of GCS and with industrial partners such as hww GmbH (T-Systems, Porsche AG) and SICOS BW GmbH.

HLRS conducts basic and applied research in the field of high-performance computing in publicly funded national and European projects as well as industrial research activities in association with partners from research and industry. Collaborative research in the automotive field is carried out in cooperation with the Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart (ASCS).
